What a Weekend

As I sit here this morning drinking my coffee and watching HGTV I can't help but think about the great weekend we had. We took a trip to San Antonio to see a concert. The line up was Randy Rogers Band, LeAnn Womack, Reba, and George Strait. I have to admit I was not very excited to see Reba...but that girl can sing!!! She is worth seeing even if you don't like her music. As always George Strait was absolutely amazing!!! We took my baby sister (about to be 15) with us which was an adventure of its own. She is great fun!!! Of course, we had to do things like see the Alamo (which we have done a million times), and hang around the river walk. The greatest part of the trip was eating Bar-B-Q on the river walk at 1 am after the concert...how fun that was!!! The wild flowers were just gorgeous on the way down and back. Although the trip was a blast I am so glad to be home again sipping coffee...but now I am off to work...hope ya'll have a wonderful day!!!

Best One Yet??

Well, you guessed it....another diaper bag. These things are getting quite popular. I have to admit that this one is my most favorite. I used a burberry patterned pink fabric on the outside. The inside is what brings it all together with the black fabric. I made this bag as a gift for my hair dresser. My major issue was she wanted me to pick out the fabric. There are so many amazing fabrics that the decision was a tough one...especially when it's for someone besides yourself. I do have to say though that it turned out great and I'm sure she is going to love it!!!

Breathing Easy

Spring, good music, and road trips...one of the many things in life that makes me sigh with pure happiness!!! What a wonderful time of year it is. We are planning several fun adventures for this spring and summer, including several concerts. We will start off with Elton John this coming Friday (one of those once in a lifetime events...really...how often does he come to Texas!!!) We will then go see George Strait in May along with Reba, Leann Womack and the fabulous Randy Rogers Band. If you have not heard of Randy Rogers Band I suggest you check them out. Texas country is HOT no matter what state you live in, and these guys prove that point. This last weekend we ventured to the lake for some fun and fishing. Along with catching several bass we also saw a few Indian writings...WOW...nothing else can be said. And of course I have been sewing...diaper bags as usual...but everyone around seems to be having babies!!! Well, I am going to make a better effort to post more...hopefully once a week but no less than every other week...we will see how long I can keep that up ; )

Thanks To Angry Chicken

I have just recently made ANOTHER zebra apron just like in my last post. I have say they are quite popular and I am so thrilled that everyone likes them. Special thanks goes out to Amy Karol and her Angry Chicken blog for an awesome how to on bias tape. The usual method is so frustrating. She makes it easy and achievable. Without her video my aprons would not be successful!!! Here's the link so you can take a look: http://angrychicken.typepad.com/angry_chicken/2008/03/bias-tape-tutor.html
